MADISON, WISCONSIN (February 2, 2011)
Promega Corporation and Fugent LLC recently signed a supply agreement that establishes Promega as a provider of the leading transfection tool FuGENE® 6. This agreement ensures that researchers will continue to have access to the FuGENE® transfection reagents they have always used in their daily research. This expands on the existing Promega/Fugent agreement for supply of the FuGENE® HD Transfection reagent.

Both FuGENE® 6 and FuGENE® HD demonstrate very high transfection efficiency with low toxicity and they have very simple protocols. FuGENE® transfection supports a breadth of Promega technologies including luciferase technologies used for cell-based assays.
"FuGENE® 6 is a leading transfection solution with trusted performance in a variety of cell model systems. Promega now has leading transfection tools for working with a myriad of biological systems, from standard cells and cancer models to primary and stem cells." says Kevin Kopish, Promega Strategic Marketing Manager.
